  1. Trouble signing in to microsoft account


    I can sign into my laptop perfectly fine, but every 10 minutes I get a pop-up telling me to sign in to to my Microsoft account so I can access family features. The sign in button on that pop-up as well as on Solitare Collection and Minesweeper tell me that they're signing in but never do so. Also, Word is telling me I'm signed in but can't access my account. This leads me to believe I am signed in and out simultaneously. Can anyone suggest what the problem is and how to fix it?


    Note: This is on Windows 10.

    :)

  3. sign into microsoft account glitch

    Hi Micheal,

    Welcome to Microsoft Community.

    • Is this the only account on the computer?
    • Was this account upgraded from previous version of Windows?

    It looks like you are using a local account. I suggest you follow these steps:

    • Click on search in taskbar and type account.
    • Click on Accounts.
    • Now, under Your account, click on Sign in with Microsoft account instead.
    • Enter your Local account password for confirmation and then follow the screen instruction.
    • Enter User name credentials for your the new Microsoft account and click OK.

    Hope this helps.

    Regards
